    Default Storm Irene

    The people on the east coast are in my prayers at this time and I'm hoping that everyone came out from the rage of storm Irene, ok.

    Before Storm Irene arrived, our call center got quite a few calls asking for storage and "security from weather" was a prime concern. People who needed to store their boat or household items were on the hunt for secure storage from the strom.

    Now that it's over, people are calling the storage facilities that they rent with to ask if "their stuff" is ok, or to see if the store will be open so they can get into their unit.

    I expect many storage facilities will have quite a few viocemail messages and incoming calls when employees arrive to work.

    Does anyone here on SST have or know of anyone else who has a storage facility that was on the path of Storm Irene? If so, which store was it, where was it and how did it hold up during the storm?

    We have quite a contingent of North Carolina members. They may be without electricity at the moment, so we may not hear from them immediately. Many thoughts and prayers for them.

    Just spoke to astro, and I forgot he's so far west in NC (and high up in the mountains) that he was really unaffected. Who do we have, though, from Wilmington, Raleigh/Durham, and east/central/coastal areas?

    What about ManhattanMini or some of our New Yorkers? How are you all faring?

    I'm beginning to hate trees, mother nature, and anything else that can fall.

    Here in the Piedmont Triad area of NC, lots of wind, branches down...not as much rain as I would have expected....love God's sense of humor. I used the blower on my entire facility early last week...my lot was spotless....found out God's blower is bigger than my blower....everything & more blew right back on lot! haha...

    Prayers with those nearer the coast who were really hit....the pictures I'm sure is not like being there & actually seeing it

    We are about 60 miles south of Wilmington...my son lives there...no power where he lives, and flooding at Wrightsville Beach on the east side of Wilmington. Lots of pine trees down here, but no facility damage. We lived in Wilmington for 10 years in the 1990's, and so many hurricanes went through that area that most everything left standing in that city can survive anything!

    I'm surprised you have electricity up there in Richmond, you must be living right!
